The day after a Holiday is a mixture of all emotions, but if I'm being honest with myself, and I mean REALLY being honest, I'm sort of relieved Thanksgiving is over- I love it so much but it can be super exhausting. But really I'm just excited that it's not considered "too early" to decorate for Christmas anymore. Also, I hope you didn't come here looking for "black Friday deals" because I've just never really been into them lol maybe I'll post some Christmas deals down the road though if you all want some? Let me know below in the comments!
You honestly didn't think I wouldn't decorate one of my favorite spaces for Christmas, did you? I've talked before about how we don't really have much of an Entryway because our front door opens right up into the dining room- it kinda stinks but it's just the way things worked out when we started remodeling.
We ended up moving the stairs from the middle of the house where the island bar is, to the far left of the house and we decided to keep the large space open to create the illusion of more space. While the result gave us smaller bedrooms, I don't regret our decision to open up this space. It really does open things up.
I'm really excited to say that I did finish this staircase myself! It was one of the first things I did "alone" and also one of the things that inspired this little blog! I wanted to share our bumps in the road along the way in our fixer upper journey to hopefully encourage people to start some projects of their own, and maybe even start to love their homes again.
Um, wow. Okay, so I got off topic super fast. Sorry about that. Back to the purpose of today's post! Our little Rustic Farmhouse Christmas "Entryway"! I'm seriously surprised I keep finding myself adding little bits of red everywhere for Christmas. I mean, typically I hate color. But I'm just so drawn to this cozy color for the Holidays!
The Garland is from Lynch Creek Wreaths and this is my third year ordering from them. Seriously? They have the most gorgeous garland ever, and at really great prices! I just love the smell of fresh garland and I haven't had luck finding a faux garland that's realistic enough for me, so, fresh garland it is here in at The Scardina Casa!
I really struggled between wanting this space to be super neutral and wanting to add some red too- so I added the red candles just for fun, but after I shot these photos, I didn't like them, so went back to the white ones. I'm sure this space will change shortly, and I'll share when it does! But for now, this is it!
I picked up the adorable 'Jolly' sign at a barn sale last year, and I'm still in love with it. So perfect for more "rustic" take on Christmas this year- Don't you think?
The blue desk that I refinished will always be one of my favorite pieces, but I'm thinking about adding a bench here in the near future. We'll see how it goes..
We are SOOOO ready for Christmas here- how about you?
I can't wait to share more of my Christmas decor with you!! I'd love to hear what you think about the entry? Do you like the garland? Feel free to chat with me on Instagram, Facebook or leave a comment below. I just LOVE hearing from you all!
Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!
